Two teams who will likely battle for 6 wins and bowl eligibility meet on Friday night as the Mississippi State Bulldogs meet with the BYU Cougars.
The Bulldogs come in off a blowout loss to Auburn, while the Cougars got a signature a win as they upset Michigan State on the road.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs are in certain need of a bounce back performance after getting trounced against Auburn last week.
Mississippi State was picked apart by the run game as they allowed 228 yards in a 38-14 defeat. The struggle defensively came as a huge surprise as the Bulldogs have been top notch when it comes to stopping the opposing team on this side of the ball.
The Bulldogs rank 47th in yards against (371.4) and concede a respectable 26.2 points against.
This is certainly going to be a test for them as their offense has been extremely inconsistent.
The Bulldogs manage just 25.6 points per game and it’s been clear why they have loss their 3 game this year. Scoring just 20 points twice and the 14 points last week, Mississippi State has really struggled with the pass game.
Expect them to take more chances here against this BYU defense, as they have to find a way to put up points as they know the Cougars can score and score quick.
Every game the Cougars play is under the microscope this season.
BYU sits at 3-3 on the season as they continue to try and impress the Big 12 committee, working to get an invite into the conference.
The Cougars started off extremely sluggish, but have turned things up a notch with wins over Toledo and the Spartans.
This BYU team won at Michigan State last week with their run game, but they’ve extremely balanced on the season. The Cougars have accumulated 1,264 passing yards and 1,260 rushing yards up to this point.
They’ll use the same style here as they like to work the run in early and then take their chances down field.
On the ground, look for Jamaal Williams to really have some success here after seeing what Auburn did to this Bulldogs defense last week. Williams sits 2nd in the FBS with 10 rushing touchdowns this season.
